This software streamlines the collateral process by walking a user through the process of capturing pictures and data about each collateral piece on a mobile device and requesting an estimated value. Often a loan involves multiple pieces of collateral, this software will organize the collateral for a business owner in a package listing all collateral with pictures and data. This data can then be printed or downloaded.
Valuations can be done by HeavyWorth, a third party using data and an experienced individual in agriculture and construction equipment. The software is flexible to allow those financial organization that have a designated estimating department to assign a value.
If there is a desire to sell a piece of collateral, we have an industry partner that makes it fast and easy to list on an auction site.
How to get started

Launch the application to start the photo and comment capturing of equipment

The system will walk you through information to capture and once it is captured will show a green check mark. For those items still needing to be captured, the item will have a gray circle with white check mark.
Clicking on each section allows you to walk through the process and gather information necessary to evaluate the equipment. If you click into a section and don’t have any of that specific information, click on “cancel” at the bottom of the screen and it will take you back to the main menu to select another section. Capturing information in one section is required to be done with the capture process. You can go back and update information at a later date.
Enter location of equipment
Enter equipment description
Take pictures of equipment. The order of the pictures that are captured will be the order displayed in the “catalog”. (For example, if the first picture is a profile picture and the second picture is VIN or Serial Number consistently, the employees will know quickly where to look for the information.)
Add special features of the equipment as it may impact the value
List any problems with the equipment which will also impact the value.
You will be able to view all the phots and add general notes.
Finally, you can enter the value of the equipment if you know the value. (This value can be left blank by HeavyWorth person doing the capture or the bank employee doing the capture. The Bank can have the employee capturing estimate the value and they can also adjust the value in the final estimate. If the owner provides an estimate of the value, that should be put in the comment section.
Click on “Done Capturing” at the bottom of the screen.
You will be directed to a screen showing the profile picture and description. At the top of this page you will see a status of “Capture in Progress”.
